    You can't take off your helmet in a fight anymore. 2 minute penalty if you do. Interesting.

    3-1 Leafs vs Flyers thus far.

    Good to see Panthers fans packing the house. If someone asked me where this picture was taken, I would have said this was from Game 7 of the NBA Finals at American Airlines Arena.

    A player that was shy and invisible last year (Carter Ashton) just gave Steve Ott a beat down. I knew he was being rough during training camp, but I didn't realize it was to the extent of actually being rough in-game, too. I guess he's determined.

    Haha... they have already perfected the 'take off your opponent's helmet' while fighting.

    One game into his NHL coaching career and Patrick Roy is already throwing violent fits.

    Roy has always been that way. He's going to be fun to watch.

    This kid has been phenomenal, he's really energized the Sharks. That line of Burns, Thornton and Hertl is scary.

    I know the Leafs are 3-1, but I can't help but feel that they're playing very poorly and are only winning out of mere chance rather than distinct skill. I'm very uneasy about this since they're not fun to watch anymore and once luck leaves their side then I could see there being one of the typical 7-12 game losing streaks. I hope this improves.

    Hertl is looking great. I hope he becomes a star and isn't a one-hit wonder.

    And of course the day I decide to not watch the game the Leafs get a shutout...

    Great trade for Buffalo. Kinda bad trade for the Islanders.

    Don't tell me how tough football players have it by having to play a Thursday game after playing on Sunday. The Sharks just played 3 games in 4 days.

    At least the Flyers are occaisionally on the Canes schedule :mischief: .

    However, I am ashamed to admit I turned the game off in disgust with 3 minutes left and down 1-0... of course that is when they score and then win in OT :crazyeye: .
